I run a toy robot company called Modular Robotics. We're bringing Cubelets, our robotic construction kit, to market and plan to have kits available in April 2011.
In 2008-2009 I was a Visiting Scientist at the Cornell Computational Synthesis Lab in Ithaca, New York. In 2008, I finished my PhD from the Computational Design Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University where I worked on roBlocks and the Erstwhile Agent, an evolutionary design program for modular robotic constructions.Cubelets were recently featured in Ars Technica, the Make blog, and in Wired.
